Flowers and People Food

First, a big congrats to Eileen Marie, the winner of last week’s Baba Souk giveaway!

Having the Do It Yourself crew on Monday was fun (understatement of the year, possibly), and Scott and I have been talking about it non-stop since then, hoping they could just come again, fluff our pillows every day, fill our home with fresh buds and switch things up to keep things interesting around here (okay, now I must sound crazy).

But a perk of their visit (as if their visit alone wasn’t enough!) was what they left behind – fruit for weeks (there’s no lack of vitamin C in this home!), pretty jars, vases and our first pretty fruit bowl; because believe it or not, until now, we’d been piling our produce on the counter or in a makeshift pasta dish (for real, we’ve had buy fruit bowl on our list for, hmm, years?). And left behind in those vases? The flowers!

We’ve split them up throughout the home – on the console and in the studio – and hey, how do you like our “grocery list”? That was my best attempt at having to write something on the chalkboard (I was put on the spot and panicked!) for the shoot. Way to go, Kim, for narrowing it down to the lowest common denominator.

Now, to see what that grocery list would bring home if either of us went solo to the store and each brought back our own versions of people food.

    Okay, I actually think your grocery list is adorable. And my cat thinks flowers and people food ARE cat food so it made me chuckle :) Gorgeous flowers, too!ReplyCancel

    Ha, Jacki, at one point, Maddie ran up to the flowers during the shoot, hacked off a few petals with her teeth, then ran away as fast as she could!ReplyCancel

    Those flowers make my heart melt. I wish fresh flowers were more of a priority around here!

    p.s. your grocery list!!!! hahahahaha!ReplyCancel

    Julia, they’re rarely a priority around here, too! We’re soaking in every minute with them…ReplyCancel

    Haha! Love this! I kind of feel the same way this week after N’s party, except not in the fancy-pants, excited about a photo-shoot kind of way. ;) Just happy that I’m in love w/ our house again after a fresh scrub and rearranging of small bits, and I also bought fresh flowers for N’s party after 2 years (last time was for E’s 30th and the time before that, our 5th anniversary)! And they just made me so gosh darn happy, I need to buy them at least once a year now, by golly!ReplyCancel

    Jill, you should buy them more than once a year! Maybe we need to start slow and work our way up though. We’re just as bad about not putting fresh flowers in the home!ReplyCancel

    I do a halfway decent job of making sure we’ve got some fresh blooms in the house but those beauties put my Costco bouquets to shame!!ReplyCancel

  • I agree with Jacki. I think the list is super cute. I can’t wait to see more images for your shoot! :)ReplyCancel
